    I don't think he's a good face. But I don't know that he's necessarily a face right now, or even if that's what you think.

    Personally I think he's a tweener right now and only appears face because he opposes Chris Jericho who is super heel. I don't think he does a very good job and I personally find him very boring in his current role.

    I think he's doing a terrible job, no wonder they didn't put the strap on him. He's boring as fuck.

    Huh? Wasn't he supposed to be the ultimate sleazeball and scumbag who would do anything to get ahead? Not sure what you're talking about there...

    And I don't find him compelling as a face nor I do I think he's likable. His promos are often really self-indulgent and childish and not in a funny way like the Rock but in a lame tedious way like Cena, but less humble. But he is popular, so I guess he is sucessful to that degree.

    "Boring" is not a requirement for being a face.

    He's good in the sense that he gets kids and other people cheering for him, as cringey as the "Spear...Spear...Spear" chants are at least he gets a reaction from the crowd. He gets the reaction a face needs and people want to see him win matches, so on that basis I'd say he's a good face.

    He's obviously a much better heel, but this is about whether he's a face or not.

    He's an okay babyface but he never would've gotten as big as he if he was a babyface instead of a heel when he actually made it big. Prefer him as a heel, he's kind of meh as a babyface.

    Re: Is Edge A Good Face?

    I think Edge potential wise has it great to be a face. I think his booking has been poor.

    The fact he's being a "good guy"...., the fact he's fueding with a heel, the fact he's totally different from "heel Edge", those few things have something to do with it.

    Do you still feel he's a heel? lol why so?

    I think he could be a good face but right now he's as stale as fuck. That may be part to do with how WWE wants to build him, I don't know. But nonetheless he's pretty over with the fans so he gets a brownie point there.

    rofl. He panders to the crowd. He insults the heels. He wrestles heels. He doesn't cheat.

    How is he NOT a face?

    Seems more like a tweener than a face to me.

    That might just be a testament to how much he sucks as a face though. And I thought the spear thing was incredibly forced and didn't seem very fan-oriented.

    He was saying it over and over again until the fans started saying it too. I call that annoying. And judging by how they use Jillian and Vickie, annoying = heel. Still, I think he's more of a tweener than a face. Haven't seen him do anything really *good* that wasn't self serving, so he doesn't strike me as a face.

    Re: Is Edge A Good Face?

    I think the problem isn't with Edge, but more so the booking of Edge. They have his whole face run so far based on the spear. Edge is great on the mic and doesn't need to be continually talking about his finishing move constantly. The other thing that makes his face run kind of lackluster to this point, is that he is constantly getting the upper hand without any real adversity to this point.

    So far he has speared the heel Jericho about 2 million times and I think Jericho has hit the codebreaker, what maybe once in non match situations. The heel is supposed to the one who dominates, not the face.

    Pushed properly, Edge can and will be a great face!
    SWEEEEEEEEEEEET!!!!!

    Re: Is Edge A Good Face?

    He's a face in that he undermines the heel's dastardly plans though his methods could label him as a tweener (I mean I've never heard a good guy be called the "Ultimate Opportunist"). He's still a face though, and a really awful one. I never really thought he was that good of a heel, tbh, at least in recent years where most of the heat he got was because of Vickie or his respective ally at the time.

    Re: Is Edge A Good Face?

    Thank you Crest Fall. That sums it up for me. Yes, he's thwarting super heel Jericho but nothing he's done has really been booked as 'face.' Just because someone doesn't cheat doesn't make them a good guy. There are rules - you're expected not to cheat.
